Impulse Neuro-Controller reads your muscle signals to click before your fingers move for PC Gaming

 

 

 


 

 In the fast-paced world of online gaming, every second of response time counts… in fact, make every millisecond. The Impulse Neuro-Controller was designed with this in mind, as it detects mouse clicks before they actually happen.

 

 

 


 

Created by Canadian startup Brink Bionics, the device is essentially a fingerless neoprene glove worn on the user's hand. It incorporates four myoelectric sensors, one above each of the dorsal interosseous muscles on the back of the hand - these muscles move the fingers.

 

 

According to the company, each muscle generates an electrical signal in a fraction of a second before it begins to contract. The corresponding sensor detects this signal, which is instantly processed by the Impulse software, resulting in a mouse click signal being sent to the gaming computer.

This configuration would allow clicks to be recorded up to 80 milliseconds sooner than is possible with conventional systems, which rely on the actual mechanical click of the mouse. It can also tell the difference between left and right clicks. It doesn't matter which brand and model the mouse is, although the system is only compatible with PCs.

 

 


 

 

The Impulse Neuro-Controller has been the subject of successful crowdfunding campaigns on Kickstarter and Indiegogo - it is still available on the latter, as an on-demand product. Assuming it hits production, a pledge of CAD $ 177 (about US $ 139) will get you one, in your choice of a left or right model. The expected retail price is CAD $ 215 (US $ 169).
